I'm from Hong Kong and I'm planning to apply for UK universities in 2006.
I'm thinking, if I applied through UCAS for , say, Oxford and LSE,
had the Oxford interview but got rejected,
on the other hand got a conditional offer from LSE, say, AAB.
Then, in July, there's the interview of the Lee Shau Kee Scholarship,
four to five students are selected each year and can go to Wadham directly.
My question is, if that is the case, should I accept the offer from LSE?
If I have, most likely Oxford won't consider me for the Lee Shau Kee Scholarship, will it?
I've considered giving up the place in LSE, then apply again next year if Oxford doesn't want me. But then, I won't have the Overseas scholarship from my school, and I won't be able to afford going to the UK to study.
What should I do? Studying in the UK is my dream since childhood, but I do love Oxford very much! I like the tutorial system and the course itself! I like its traditions, its buildings, its everything, but the risk will be so big!HELP! What do you think??
P.S. I'm predicted 5A's and there were only 5 students out of over 35,000 who've got 5A's last year in the territory. No 6A's or above.
